This was supposed to be posted yesterday but didn’t make it: Paul at the Grammys with Ringo and his band. Paul won 4 Grammys including Best Rock Record, the one he made in just a few hours jamming with Dave Grohl of Nirvana. He is – may I repeat – 72 years old. And he was the only one there not wearing snazzy expensive clothes.

My son at work – there was a crisis on the street nearby, and he brought coffees out to all the firemen. He is 29. And he is wearing a Christmas sweater from his mother.
